Jesus! before Thy face we fall,
Our Lord, our life, our hope, our all;
For we have nowhere else to flee;
No Sanctuary, Lord, but Thee.
In Thee we every glory view,
Of safety, strength, and beauty too;
'Tis all our rest and peace to see
Our Sanctuary, Lord, in Thee.
Whatever foes or fears betide,
In Thy blest presence let us hide;
And while we rest our souls on Thee,
Thou shalt our Sanctuary be.
Through time, with all its
And all the grief that intervenes,
Let this support each fainting heart,
That Thou our Sanctuary art.
No. 309 in Hymns for the Little Flock
The name of the LORD is a strong tower:
the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.
